Canadian man shot to death at a pool villa in Phuket, was shot at least ten times

Phuket –

A Canadian was shot to death with about 10 bullet wounds found on his body at a pool villa in Phuket last night (February 4th).

The Chalong Police was notified of the body this morning (February 5th) at a pool villa near Rawai Beach on Wiset Road in Rawai sub-district.

Police and emergency services arrived at the pool villa to find the body of the foreign man who was later identified as a Canadian national, 31. (The Pattaya News is withholding his name pending embassy and family notification.)

About ten bullet wounds were found on his body. More than ten cartridges were found at the scene.

CCTV footage shows at about 10:30 P.M., the Canadian man has just parked a brand new late-model MG car at the villa. There were two suspects hiding nearby, apparently waiting for the victim. One of the suspects, who was hidden near a bush, jumped out and immediately fired many gunshots at the Canadian man, who fell to the ground. The two men, whose age and nationality were not immediately clear, sped away.

A housekeeper who came into the pool villa for cleaning at 6:30 A.M. today (February 5th) saw the body before calling the police.

The Region 8 Police are hunting for suspects. This is a developing story and we may add more to this article as information is released.
